New access route to Terminal 2 and renewed bus terminal to open at Helsinki Airport on 30 November
A new access route will be opened at the Helsinki Airport at 6pm on Tuesday, 30 November. The access route, which leads directly from the train station to Terminal 2, will significantly shorten the walking distance for passengers. Later that day, a renewed bus terminal will be opened next to the new extension of Terminal 2.
A new access route will be opened at the Helsinki Airport at 6pm on Tuesday, 30 November. The access route, which leads directly from the train station to Terminal 2, will significantly shorten the walking distance for passengers.
Later that day, a renewed bus terminal will be opened next to the new extension of Terminal 2. Once the renewed bus terminal is opened, the departure bays of HSL’s buses serving the airport will be moved closer to Terminal 2 doors.
The reason behind the changes is Finavia’s renovation of the Helsinki Airport. As a result of the renovation, a new extension of Terminal 2 was built for airline passengers. Starting from 1 December, the access routes for airline passengers in Terminal 2 will go through the new extension. A new departures and arrivals hall will also be opened in the terminal.

From the airport to public transport
You can access the bus terminal and train station directly from the Terminal 2 arrival hall. In the future, passengers can reach both commuter trains and buses via the same hall. The new access route will also make it easier for passengers to change between buses and commuter trains.
You can access the train station from the new arrival hall. Use the entrance to your right next to the Airport information desk to access the bus terminal.
Direct access between commuter trains and Terminal 2
In the future, you can access Terminal 2 directly from the Helsinki Airport train station. The previous access route between Terminals 1 and 2 will remain in use for passengers heading towards Terminal 1.
The new access route to Terminal 2 from the train station is located in the same part of the station as the old route. Similar to the old route, the new route is also accessible.

Renewed bus terminal
The bus terminal at the airport has been renovated in its entirety. The bus terminal is meant for the passengers of both Terminal 1 and 2. In the future, all bus services from and to the airport will use the same bus terminal.
In the future, HSL’s buses from the airport will depart from bays 10 and 11 that are the bays closest to the doors to Terminal T2. The stop for arriving buses is at the same level as the stop for departing buses, near bay 10.
The airport is served by routes 415, 561, 615 and 617 as well as trunk bus route 570. The trunk route 570, that began operating in August 2021, runs from the Helsinki Airport to Mellunmäki via Aviapolis, Jumbo shopping center, Tikkurila and Hakunila around the clock.
The bus terminal has a Finavia call point for disabled and handicapped airline passengers. The call point is located outside, between bus bay 10 and the bike station, near the terminal exit.
New bike station at the bus terminal
Next to bay 10 there is a new rain-protected bike station that passengers can use free of charge. The bike station has hundreds of bicycle racks equipped with frame-locking.
The bike station is located at the same level as the bus terminal. You can access the bike station from Lentäjäntie, from the same level as the bus terminal.
